lyrics

Sign your life to surgery
Coughing blood, heartbeat weak
But as you said,
"Don't take it for granted."

You breathe deeper with a partial lung
Understanding the efforts it takes to take it all in
Understand to take the time
To breathe deeper with a partial lung.

Inspire me, friend
Teach me how your inner voice says,
"BREATHE BOY, BREATHE!"
And everything else listens.

You breathe deeper with a partial lung
Understanding the efforts it takes to take it all in
Understand to take the time
To breathe deeper with a partial lung.

Nightmares when you might die
Panic attack and it's serious
But you turned around
Said, "LIFE IS FUCKING GREAT!"

AND BREATHE BOY, BREATHE!

about

Build Us Fiction Cincinnati, Ohio

These songs were written in Santiago, Chile. They are from a time of learning, exploring, teaching English, adventure, and growing up.

Jon Coontz and Jon Delvaux joined on drums and Rhodes/bass.
